Default Finally starting my turbo setup :)

So after about 3 years of owing various miatas I'm finally starting my turbo setup on my '99 10AE with parts primarily from an MSM with only 45K miles so figured I'd finally introduce myself instead of just lurking like I have been off & on for several years

getting manifold, turbo, dump pipe(part that goes from turbo to actual downpipe) and all lines for 600 seems reasonable enough to me as planet miata just sold a manifold & turbo with more miles(60K IIRC) for 900, no lines, no dump pipe

car already has:
-'01 rebuilt .5mm over bottom end
-'99 head
-hondata intake gasket
-MSM intake cam
-adjustable exhaust cam gear
-just did TB/WP 6 months ago, compression was good across the board, no leaks of any kind
-2.5" custom/mandrel bent SS exhaust
-mishimoto radiator & slim fans
-Mtuned coolant reroute
-949 organic twindisc

PLANNED TURBO SETUP(all OEM turbo parts have in bold= already acquireded ):
OEM MSM turbo manifold
OEM MSM turbo
OEM MSM dump pipe
OEM MSM turbo lines

-Mishimoto FMIC
-Custom IC piping
-315cc plug & play supra injectors
-pro tuning lab dump pipe & downpipe combo
-flyingmiata fm dual feed fuel rail
-fm complete intake kit
-custom FMIC piping
-MS2 or 3 stand alone with wideband & EBC

power goal for this stage is 200-225 whp

later I'll upgrade:
AN lines & fittings
larger IC
Custom 3" turbo back exhaust

for those that don't know me from CR here's the car it's going on:

other **** on the car
-autokonexion fastback
-NB2 headlights & tailights
-MSM front bumper
-15x6.5 +45 volk GR-N 2 piece (16x7 +35 regas in pics)
-JIC FLT-TAR coilovers
-Gutted interior with NA6(90-93) dash
-bossfrogg dual hoop roll bar
-KG Works stainless cluster surround & AWD needlecaps on '01 guage cluster...yeah I know a little "mnet status" but they look good LOL

coming soon:
-turbo(duh )
-Autokonexion widebody
-15x9 +7 work cr-01 or rebarell volks to similar specs(same friggin cost)

any input on my plans would be greatly appreciated as I'm definately a noob when it comes to turbo'd miatas (though I do have signifigant experience with turbo hondas & nissans)

Good luck man! I'm in the middle of my build and have wanted to turn back a handful of times. Hopefully in the end it will all be worth it. Welcome to the world of turbo.

Thanks for the encouragement.

hoping to have EVERYthing completed by end of summer

anyone know flowrate of MSM injectors vs. normal 99 injectors, I had 1 person tell me they were only 10cc difference I can't really imagine that being true I mean 99's are 125whp from the factory, MSM's are like 175ish IIRC

I found this from the FAQ thread....are MSM injectoirs the same as regular 01-05?

94-97 (tan) 230cc - #195500-2180
99-00 (red) 240cc -#195500-4430
01-05 (Lt. purple) 265cc -#195500-4060
